Report of Overseers of the Poor. 



In presenting our Report for the past year we desire to 
record the loss of a member of our Board by death. On 
the seventh day of July last Mr. Simeon Bardwell, after a 
few days of sickness, died suddenly of heart disease. In his 
death this Board lost an efficient member, the Town a most 
faithful officer, and the poor a friend who ever had their 
interest at heart. Mr. Bardwell has served the Town faith- 
fully for the last nine years as a public officer. A resolution 
expressing our high appreciation of the noble qualities of the 
deceased, both in his private and public life, having been 
passed by this Board in August, was by them forwarded to 
his family, and also placed on record. 

The Poor Farm is still under the charge of Mr. and Mrs. 
Allen, at a salary of $500. They have filled the place to 
the entire satisfaction of this Board, and we think the Town 
has been fortunate in securing the services of parties so well 
qualified for this important position. 

There has been but one death at the farm the past year, 
and the health of the inmates has been remarkably good. 
The farm-buildings have been kept in their usual good con- 
dition, and many improvements have been made in the 
interior arrangements of the house, to meet the demand of 
this large family. The usual appropriation of $4000 will be 
required for the next year. 

The relief out of the almshouse has been more than usual, 
and we have been obliged to assist more poor people than 
ever before. Our expenses at the Insane Hospitals have also 
been large, as we have had more inmates there than usual. 



42 

The number is now reduced to three, therefore our expense 
in that department will be light for the present. The tramps 
have given us very little trouble this year, having had only 
175 to provide for, against 376 last year. Three thousand 
dollars should be appropriated for Relief out of Almshouse.

Report of the Chief Engineer 



OF THE 



Fire Department. 



To the Board of Selectmen: 

Gentlemen, — In accordance with the Regulations of the 
Fire Department, I submit the following Report. 

The force of the department consists of five Engineers, 
fourteen members of the Steamer Company, and forty mem- 
bers of the Shawshin Company at Ballard Yale. 

The apparatus is in good order, and consists of one third- 
class single steamer-engine, and one hand-engine, each with 
a hose-carriage connected ; also a four-wheeled horse hose- 
carriage, carrying 1000 feet of hose 

We have ladders, hooks, and ropes at each engine-house, 
also 2500 feet of hose. 

There have been thirteen alarms of fire during the past 
year, particulars of which are as follows : 

March 25, fire in woods at Lowell Junction. 

April 11, fire in woods owned by Mrs. Laura Manning. 

April 14, fire at Smith and Dove's Factory at Frye Village. 
Loss, $13973. Amount of insurance paid, $ 10500. 

April 24, fire at house owned by Mrs. John H. Leonard. 
Damage slight. 

April 24, fire in woods owned by Mrs. Laura Manning. 

April 24, fire in woods at Frye Village owned by various 
parties. 

May 1, fire in woods at Spring Grove Cemetery. 



46 

May 24, fire at house owned by Sylvanus Smith. In- 
surance, $1200. 

September 3, an alarm for bonfire at Punchard Avenue. 

October 30, an alarm for bonfire on Lock Street. 

December 2, fire in building owned by Russell and Bar- 
nard. Insurance paid on same, $343. 

December 9, fire in building owned by Russell and Bar- 
nard. Insurance paid on same, $2200. 

Jan. 24, fire in building own by Richard Bradshaw. 
Damage slight. 

Fire at the Simeon Bardwell place in West Andover, Oct. 
29 ; it was a total loss. Loss on buildings and contents, 
$3200 ; insurance paid, $2750. The department not called 
out. 

The losses by fire during the past year have been con- 
siderably larger than for several years past, and the depart- 
ment has been called upon for assistance in preventing the 
destruction of property that has in all cases been in danger 
from brush fires, which have been numerous, that has caused 
a large expense. 

It was also found that our steam-engine required a new 
boiler, and the Town appropriated $1200 for repairs, which 
are now about completed. 

During the absence of the steam fire-engine, we secured a 
first-class hand-engine, and increased the force by the addition 
of twenty-nine men to serve until the return of the steam 
fire-engine. 

We also called upon the independent companies to assist 
us in case of fire, which they have cheerfully done. 

At the fire of December 9, owing to the large number of 
surrounding buildings, I called upon the Tiger Engine Com- 
pany of Lawrence for assistance, which they willingly gave, 
and rendered valuable and efficient service. 

I would again recommend for your consideration the great 
need of an engine-house for steam-engine and hose-carriage, 
the present building being unsuitable and greatly out of 
repair. 



47 

If the Town should think favorably of the matter, I believe 
it would be economy for them to purchase horses, also, to be 
used at such times as are necessary for the department. 

I would recommend that $2000 be appropriated for the 
running expenses of the Fire Department for the ensuing 
year.

Report, together with the receipts and expenditures for the 
year ending February 7th, 1882. 

Avery accurate Plan of the entire territory of the Cemetery, 
and another Plan embracing 342 lots including. those pre-

appropriation would permit. 

The Committee respectfully ask an appropriation of $250, 
being one half the previous amount, together with the avails 
of the lots sold the current year.

Tenth Annual Report 



OF THE 



Trustees of the Memorial Hall 



The event of special interest during the past year has been 
the publication of a Supplement to the Catalogue of the Li- 
brary. This Supplement embraces all the books added to 
the Library since 1874, and with the original Catalogue fur- 
nishes a complete guide to the whole Library, with the excep- 
tion of books added since May of the present year. A glance 
at this volume of 158 pages will show what valuable progress 
has been made by the Library since the printing of the first 
Catalogue ; and a further investigation of its contents will 
disclose the fact that the progress has not been confined to 
quantity. The original foundation of the Library was made 
with great discretion, and a much larger proportion of books 
of permanent value were purchased as the basis of the col- 
lection than is usual. It has not been possible to keep up 
quite the same proportion between the light and substantial 
elements in our additions, for the reason that current litera- 
ture does not come to us in such proportions. To one book 
of permanent value there are a score of books of light im- 
portance, but which serve their purpose as a means of amuse- 
ment, instruction, and the cultivation of the habit of reading. 
But if the proportion of solid material has been less, it has 
still been considerable. It has been the aim of the Com- 
mittee to pass by no book of value which was not either 
unsuitable on account of its technical or abstruse character, 



59 

or out of their reach by reason of its expensiveness. In the 
department of general literature we have now in our Library 
a collection of great Talue for working purposes. 

We would again remind all who value the privileges of 
the Library of the importance of preserving carefully the 
Annual Town Reports. All the additions to the Library will 
be published in these reports from year to year in connection 
with the numbers by which they may be drawn, so that a 
perfect Catalogue of the Library down to the close of each 
preceding year, may be in the possession of each household. 
Another Supplement will not, probably, be published for ten 
years. 

We would also call attention to the fact that the last dona- 
tion to the Library (a check for $1000 from Mr. John Smith), 
has been expended. The Trustees still have at their dis- 
posal, for the purchase of books, the sum derived annually 
from the dog-tax. But this alone will be insufficient to con- 
tinue the increase of the Library at the rate hitherto main- 
tained. Shall we fall behind in our purchase of new books, 
which every one wishes to see ? Or will some way be found 
of securing to the Library the addition of $200 a year, per- 
manent income ? 

Several policies of insurance on the Building and Books 
expires the present year, and a sum not exceeding $300 will 
be asked from the town to cover the policies for five years. 

By the death of Mr. James Shaw of Ballard Yale, a vacancy 
has been made in the Board during the past year. Resolu- 
tions in recognition of the loss sustained by the community, 
and expressing sympathy with the friends of the deceased, 
were placed on record and also forwarded to the bereaved 
family. Several interesting donations will be seen to have 
been received during the year. A portrait of our late 
townsman, Hon. Hobart Clark, one of the chief promoters of 
the Boston and Maine Railway, from George Hodges ; a bust 
of Professor E. A. Park, from Mr. Joseph W. Smith, and a 
portrait of Daniel Webster from the Misses Low, are among 
the number. 



60 

The annual examination has found the Library, and other 
property to be in good condition.
